Dallas Buyers Club. First Anne Hathaway lost 25 pounds to be in Les Miserables, and now Matthew McConaughey loses even more weight for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. In the future, Academy members won’t vote for best actor but will hold a weigh-in, and whoever comes in lowest will take the Oscar.
Philomena. This is the story of a woman who was forced by a convent to sign away the parental rights to her young son, and of her 50 year search to find him. You know, sometimes it seems like it takes that long to find a decent movie at the local multiplex, but if you go to see this film, both your search, and Philomena’s, will have a happy ending.
